Driver Ticketed For Crash Involving Ambulance

A Scotland County Ambulance was involved in a two-vehicle accident in Columbia, MO on Thursday, April 29, at 1:06 p.m. while en route transporting a patient to University Hospital.

According to the Columbia Police Department, the ambulance was westbound on Stadium Boulevard with its emergency lights and sirens activated.

Chrystina Yu, 20 was driving a 2005 Honda Civic southbound on Old Highway 63. The police report indicated that the Yu vehicle entered the Stadium Blvd. intersection, pulling into the path of the emergency vehicle.

Yu was attempting to make a lefthand turn onto Stadium Boulevard to head eastbound on Stadium. The vehicles collided nearly head-on, with Yus car coming to rest in the intersection. The ambulance veered to the north, attempting to avoid the collision, and ran off the right side of the roadway where it went down an embankment before coming to rest.

Yu was transported by Columbia Ambulance to Boone Medical Center. A patient on the Scotland County Ambulance, 54-year-old Bobby L. Johnson, was transferred to a Columbia Ambulance and taken on to University Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound, suffered in a hunting accident in Clark County.

The Columbia Police Department indicated that a citation was issued to Yu for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Marcia Dial, SCH CEO said, We are so relieved and feel fortunate that our Ambulance personnel were uninjured in this incident. I have full confidence in their skills and I believe they managed to the highest degree, to keep this unfortunate accident from being worse.
